Judicial Retirements

In 2015, with the help of New Hampshire Director of State Courts Don Goodnow, the NCSC collected information from all but 5 states on judicial retirements. A survey of 15 questions was answered and states representatives were extremely helpful in providing their data. In most cases all 15 questions were answered but in a handful of instances, responses were more limited.  Regardless, the data is extremely valuable and covers issues surrounding mandatory retirement age, requirements for retirement with benefits, contribution rates to judicial pensions by judges, retirement benefit formula, beneficiary entitlements, etc.  The survey questions which were used can be seen here.
